-positioned assets so that fema personnel are working closely with state and local governments. there has been extraordinarily close coordination between state, federal, and local governments. >> and everybody on the local level have backed that up. 1-800-steph-1-2 is the number to call that's 1-800-steph-1-2. let's talk to don in florida about privatizing fema. hey, don. >> caller: yeah, thanks for taking my call. i have a political strategy for ohio actually a democratic one. but romney is trying to do whatever he can to get any press coverage he can possibly get. these food thing, i heard he called these governors and all of this stuff. i know he has been running for president for the last 20 years it seems, he wouldn't even be in the picture but he is just trying to get his name out there, because obama and the storm will get all of the reaction. >> and it seems like him calling the governors would be just getting in the way. >> and what a coincidence he is doing this in all of the battleground states. >> he'll privatize anything for a buck. >> yeah. >> one way to get r
.com, you can find out in your local neighborhood where your neighborhood team leaders are and you can get in touch with them. find out what activities are going on. where to make phone calls what doors to knock on. what's happening organizationally in your region. it is best way to get involved. dashboard.barack obama.com. >> jennifer: you hear that? there is a way to get involved and make a difference in this campaign. stephanie cutter, deputy campaign manager for obama 2012. thanks so much for joining us. >> thanks, governor. >> jennifer: all right. coming up, if you're one of those junkies who just eats, sleeps and breathes politics, you are going to flat out love what we have coming up next. forget must-win states. we're going to get you on the ground in some must-win counties. plus, what was the very first political ad? how about the very first attack ad? tonight, we're going to kick off our series on the selling of the president. political ads that changed history. and later millennials, you young people are
? but the federal government wouldn't do anything? and then forget the state and local government. are you kidding me? privatize it? how insane is that? so if you're poor and you couldn't afford whatever rates that romney's friends were going to charge you after he privatized it, sad day for you? ha ha, you get stuck in that? that's a disastrous idea! this is about the core role of the government. are we here for each other in times like this or do we just leave each other to fend for ourselves. apparently romney clearly says during this election cycle during these primary debates they had among the republicans says fend for yourselves, i'm going to make a buck off of it. he was asked about that numerous times today on the campaign trail. he just wouldn't answer. watch. >> cenk: well, that was wonderfully awkward. those are simple questions. answer the question. finally, how incompetent is your campaign? you didn't think they would ask you a question about fema today after you just said during the primaries you would get ri
the budget. he did cut 15% of spending in aid to cities and towns. he did cut 4% of the budget for local schools. congratulations, you cut local education. winner! but here's what he doesn't tell you, so all those local cities and towns had to make up the money somehow. what do they do? they raise property taxes. on average they went up 24% under romney's just his four year reign. why? they had to get the money from somewhere. that's $700 a year out of the packet of all the people in massachusetts that owned a home. he doesn't tell you about that, does he? >> how about that famed bipartisanship he brags about? do you know how many times he issued vetoes? 844 vetoes. jesus! what happened to bipartisan ship? >> when you ask the president of the senate at the time, well, here's what he says about that. >> he truly didn't have an understanding of how valuable the political personal component of the business would be as he went forward with implementing the political rhetoric into political policy. >> and then even senior advisor to mitt romney himself said this. >> the governor came in as an
especially after the debate there was extra local attention on that debate. there was so much residual coverage of that in the local media here that president obama's performance and mitt romney's performance played an especially huge role. >> jennifer: you think because of the local coverage coupled with the national coverage you got really saturated? >> that's absolutely right. it wasn't just the national story, it was local radio and television, and there was a before and after on all of this. >> jennifer: there still is. we're still talking about it too. so tell us about the mood of the conservative -- i know you have a radio show where you have a lot of conservative listeners so i assume they are feeling their oats for mitt romney? feeling really good? >> here is what is worrisome, i sense that the enthusiasm is on romney's side. the organization is on the democratic side, but there is a lot of enthusiasm, not necessarily for mitt romney but for the idea that mitt romney can defeat president obama. i feel like there are a lot of conservative voters in this
and the social influence much much expanded. >> eliot: the plutocracy, there has always been the local banker, the doctor, the lawyer, those who are viewed central to the decision making but they were integrated in the every day life of the community. now these are two separate worlds and the chasm has grown even bigger. >> this point about local is a key point eliot. for the people at the very very top its increasingly hard to define local. capitalism is global. markets are global. and people at the very top are increasingly living in a world absolutely apart from the rest of us, and they're becoming a nation unto themselves. >> eliot: and so rather than having a wealthy subset that we're still part of a local community, what you're saying you have an extraordinarily wealthy elite defines it's commonality globally and internationally. so the elite in new york, paris and london have more in common with each other than they do with their neighbors three blocks away. >> absolutely. and throw in mumbai, shanghai and moscow. this is a truly global group. this is not to impugn the patriotism of th
. and i became involved for the first time at the national level. i've always been a local activist local and state level but i went to my first national green party meeting at that point to ensure that we would not let this outrage of dismantling medicare and social security go unchallenged. you know what happens when you join a recruiting committee sometimes you get recruited. the rest is where we are today. >> john: i'm glad you mentioned nutrition because while we all admire what the president and his wife have done to encourage kids to exercise, pretty much no one one in d.c. politics that americans eat food that isn't really food. it underscores a point. a lot of folks who don't know better think the green party is about environmental issues but really it is about everything, isn't it? >> it really is. and i think -- you know, the thing about green is that we see how things are connected. and in fact, we got two crises right now. one is a crisis with our economy and the other crisis is the crisis in clima
, are there easy ways for people like tom to transition into local factories that might be hiring? >> there are few opportunities in freeport but tom is in a unique system. his age and education goes against him, but his passion and legacy of hard work are attributed to him, and there could be opportunities for tom and the rest of the workers. the workers aren't slouches. they don't work on widgets, they work on high-tolerance machinery, they are educated and globally competitive, and they have shown that in the marketplace where there is about a 40% margin on these products already. so you have great people like tom who have some things going against him, but his passion, hard work, and love for the community are one thing that will hopefully help him get through. >> jennifer: mayor the human costs of all of this outsourcing cannot be overstated. i really appreciate you coming on to explain. just a quick postscript by the way to this story. also want to let you know about another company that bain capital owns and that's asimco. bane purchased that company i
is very impressed with the local response and how local and federal government seems to have really come together. and fema really has improved in the last five years. >> yeah. >> i want to give credit to fox news, because they did the best coverage, and they had frank luntz and ann coulter on at the same time in hopes that the sheer evil would keep the storm away. >> i saw mayor bloomberg on the tv, and he is wall an imconspiring person. >> well, yeah. it is tragic for the loss of life although it is compared to haiti, america has nothing to complain about -- >> and you have been to haiti -- >> yeah, but they lost a folks in haiti on that storm, and it's tragic the 11 lives we have lost so far in the states. roland lost power. >> yeah. >> as well as frank coniff who is staying in my old place lost power. this is not be an katrina, it seems like people were really prepared. state and local government really worked together. over 50 homes have been destroyed, and i'm waiting to hear if my family's house is okay. but in general people stuck together and it has been a
've been all over. we've been able to do a lot of awareness around local elections and empowerment of trying to create leaders. it's been remarkable to see people over and over now. people are running for office. people are taking over in their schools and becoming presidents of their different organizations. there is so much potential there. and civic participation is really our goal in all the different ways. >> you reach out in unique ways, and not in ways that people necessarily may expect. meaning it's not all in spanish. >> mm-hmm. >> gavin: you reach out with celebrities, why is that? i think there is some mythology that the overwhelming majority are speaking a native language of spanish or whatever, but instead mostly english. >> yes actually there are a lot of myths around the american american-latino. some think that most latinos here in the country are here illegally. there is a lot to counter act information. one of them is that they don't speak english. especially when you're trying to reach out to the vote no matter which political party if you're only doing that in s
and if they spend more money at their local businesses, then local business also hire more people, that sort of thing. there were more detective things that got to this question of mid-level jobs disappearing. one was more infrastructure spending putting more construction workers back to work. a lot of construction workers lost their jobs when the houseing bubble collapsed. it also targeted people who were part of the long-term unemployed. >> eliot: retraining them. >> retraining them. >> eliot: which is something that they have talked about as well. >> both parties have talked about retraining. retraining is very important for the american people. the higher-skilled jobs is where the higher income is at. but getting people in the right program-- >> eliot: not to be skeptical of what the president is proposing but it is a kinsian stimulus. the retraining the government spends a lot of money but it does not do terribly well because it doesn't know what jobs you're supposed to be retaining for. and the in this, infrastructure, we're all for it, but then there is the stimulus all over again. yo
the ball in keeping ambassador stephens safe. but it actually revealed the names of locals working with the u.s., and exposed them to the very groups that attacked the consulate. so how dangerous is it that he is revealing these documents? >> i think it shows, jennifer the problem that you have when you have a serious foreign policy issue getting caught up in gotcha politics. here you have an instance where perhaps congressman issa really overstepped his bounds and now some people might be in danger. i didn't see what was knew beyond what we have already learned last week which were scathing for the state department and lead secretary clinton to take responsibility for the whole debacle. i don't see this issue going away unfortunately in terms of the politics of it. >> jennifer: they certainly revealed nothing new in terms of what happened next but they certainly did reveal something new in terms of names of people who might have been helping the united states. >> yeah that's the problem. we already know from the regional security officer saying we needed mo
is usually 100-yard long before you get to the beach. >> fema personnel are working with state and local governments. >> there are things flying off the roof here. >> 30-foot waves on top of 10 to 11 to 12-foot storm surge. >> this is not a time to be stupid. >> the national guard is not too far from husband. >> a lot of people are endureing very difficult times. >> 900 miles wide. that's the tropical storm. >> the crane is dangling above west 56th street. >> sandy has everyone scrambling. >> i'm not worried about the impact on election. i'm worried about the impact on families. >> this is what we live for. >> cenk: all right "viewpoint" is not on the air today because they're in new york, and obviously all of new york is suffering through storm sandy and i can give you the latest. in fact, it just made ground fall in southern new jersey as we speak. the winds are still up to 60 to 80 mph. we've got coastal flooding and 2 million people without power already. on top of that we just also heard unfortunately we have our first storm-related fatality in maryland. so obviously the storm is ve
into fact local and state taxes you know what the top 5% pay? they get 35.3% of the income, as you can say in 2011 and they pay 37.1% of the taxes. so that is not a very progressive tax system at all. and so why is romney saying they pay 60% of the taxes when in reality when you take all the taxes in effect they pay pretty much the percentage that they get, 35% to 37%. because romney thinks it's his job to protect the top 5%. no don't raise the taxes. they already pay too much--of federal income. his job will be to look out for the top 5% who made him president and who earlier made him governor. that's what they have to connect and understand that this guy is not going to create any jobs. he didn't do it in massachusetts, and's not going to do it as president. that's not his goal. you have 18 days to do it. i hope the obama administration is listening. this is an issue that used issue for mitt romney. swing state likely female voters 49% for president obama and 48% for mitt romney. that used to be a much larger differential but it's obviously closed. why? he says, i got a binder full of

-qaeda as your local gas station does to bp headquarterers. so this is al-qaeda. no. they want to understood mine the narrative that obama has gotten the key leadership of al-qaeda. but they are not a threat to the united states anymore. they are local groups. >> jennifer: so fascinating. thank you so much for enlightening us as to what really happened. >> thank you very much for having me. >> jennifer: you bet. we already have a shrine to mitt's flips inside of "the war room." i think we have to build a barrel. so how is ryan's malarkey? we'll get our shovels next right here in "the war room." presidential debate. with unrivaled analysis and commentary. >> was this the game changer? is this going to change the dynamic?

on hurricane sandy. >> obama: ref pre-positioned assets where local personnel is working with state governments and we we have resources available for those communities hardest hit. i'm grateful for the cooperation of our state and local officials. conversations at this point there are no unmet needs. i think everyone is taking this very seriously. >> cenk: that was not a compilation of weather reports. we'll have that late for you in the show. that's president obama respond together disaster. being president, he's in charge. this is a very important moment. i don't know if you know this but we're very close to an election eight days away. how he handles this might be enormously important to how you vote in november. that's the president talking about the importance of fema. when you talk to mitt romney, if he talks like he did during the primaries, he told you he's not interested in fema. >> therefema is running out of money and some are saying maybe we are learning what the state's role should you. >> when you take something from the federal government and send it back to the states, that's t
. >> it required stitches, i know he was treated here by the local ems 12347 the police charged jennings with assault, theft and hate crime because he told the middle eastern cabbie to go back to his own country. >> cenk: that's an exact quote. according to the cabbie he said, i'm going to kill you. you should go back to your country. forget the hate crime part of it although you shouldn't forget that, but he said, i'm going to kill you and then stabs the guy. the cabbie said he tried to stab him in the neck and he blocked it with his hand. no one disputes that he pulled a knife. but the cops wouldn't do anything to him because he pays $10,000 in taxes. you want to talk about a sense of entitlement. i'm rich, and i've a $3.5 million house, i can stab you all i like. you know what they did today? dropped the charges. local report. >> in queens a cabbie anger and frustrateed. >> it's unfair. i swear to god, it's really unfair. >> in stamford a banker thankful and relieved. >> i don't have a lot to say about the case beyond the fact that the outcome speaks for itself. >> connecticut prosec
nation's capitol and booming out to you on current tv and on your local progressive talk radio station. hope you had a good weekend got a chance to rest up watch some baseball, watch some football, and are ready to tackle the news of the day. of course, it is a holiday for some americans. don't ask me. well, if you work for state, local, or federal government. i guess state and local still. we know the federal government has the day off. schools are open today at least in montgomery county. so if you have got the holiday, enjoy it. if not, like the rest of us welcome to the workday. we would be grad to take your calls. a 866-55-press 866-557-7377. having now said that we are all working today, that's not true because dan henning has decided to celebrate the day. >> yeah, he is not italian. >> but peter ogburn here. and siprion is out today too. monty is filling in for him as our video engineer. >> and you're back most importantly, you are back. >> thank you. and a great big thank you to john fugelsang and to jamal simmons for take over the driver's seat- week. good to
in philadelphia. i know some other locales had their challenges. but it is a command central operation and they are getting information in and kicking information out throughout the jurisdiction. to make sure there's full coordination. >> jennifer: it is amazing to me -- people may not realize it. the one type of area where you have complete synergy between federal, state and local where they're all in the room if he table including some members of folks who can amass contributions from the private sector. it is an amazing operation. let me quickly turn to the election because obviously pennsylvania is a state that has become in focus again. one week away. the romney campaign is up with a new ad in pennsylvania. curiously. let's listen to one part of it. >> obama: if somebody wants to build a coal fire plant, they can. it is just that it will bankrupt them. >> announcer: obama kept that promise and pennsylvania coal paid the price. >> jennifer: so the romney war room wants to keep it close in pennsylvania. how are de
local teenagers later to become known as the west memphis three were arrested for the crime. based on the forced confession of one of these teen, a mentally handicapped young man along with the fact that the teens wore black and listened to heavy metal music, a community looking for vengeance convicted them. the three would serve 18 years in prison before released last august after signing an alford plea, a feigned at mission of guilt that allowed the defendants to maintain their innocence but prevented them from suing the state for wrongful conviction. earlier this week i had a chance to speak to one of the west memphis three damien echolss who served his entire 18 years on death row. this is a tale of horror, thank you for joining us. >> thank you so much for having me. >> i just feel like--where did it go wrong? you lived a horror tale of one error after another. take us through where were the errors? the police, the judge, the prosecutors, did they compile one on top of the other? >> absolutely. after the balance started rolling no one wanted to admit that they made a mistake.
. >> gavin: a cut of the drugs. >> oh, big business. just local flavor back then, just local color. but once there was a market for for--for the harder drugs which we were not part of, we just got out. we didn't want any part of it. this wasn't us. it didn't help music and it destroyed humanity, everything we were against. you know we didn't want to be part of any of that. one by one, i was the first and then big ben jerry phil, bobby, we all eventually moved out. >> gavin: this new new new album was recorded in your institutes. >> i've always had a studio. i take a long time to do things. >> gavin: this was five years. >> three and a half. i had to learn the license of changing light waves and sound waves. it wasn't like--it wasn't like okay, let's make or i could use the sounds of the big bang, you know. it wasn't you just go and do it. where are you going to look that up? working with the smithsonian and i have a great relation with nasa, and with all the radio telescopes around the world. the science work with all of my scientific staff. i was a series science staff that does the serious
getting obama in the office. the system of electing local and state and federal officials is appalling. it's set up to continue extraordinary levels of disenfranchisement, and i think hopefully the increased attention will translate. but again we need color of change and many other organizations, this show and others on tv to bring this to the foreground. we need a three party system and all kinds of challenges to inintimidation to democracy. >> rashard listening to what tricia is saying has clear channel responded? has there been any movement on this? are people outraged. >> there are people who are outraged locally and nationally. they have offered up a billboard to put up their own message but that's not enough. this is not a two-sided conversation. we're not having a two-sided conversation about people's ability to go to the polls and access the polls without intimidation or this culture of fear. what we hope is every day american, people who are watching your show will go to color of change.org , sign the petition, text, sign to 225568. that's sign 225568. join this campaign. the more

. is that the key to success in all of these countries that partnership with local government and obviously national government? has that been the strength in the partnerships with thailand, or is that a point of concern. >> from the happy hearts standpoint we work with corporations n.g.o.s governments. but mainly it has been a case, in haiti on the part of big government. i think every country is slightly different. sometimes you are able to be faster without the governmental interaction. in haiti you have to work with the government to get things done. so i think you have to take it case by case, and alter it tailor it for the scenario. there the government is there for the people, and they want to create a change together partner, and have the same goals. of course, i'm always for any smart nerships. >> gavin: it's great to have you this. >> gavin: established in 199 save the children has been around for almost 19 years. it's largely seen as a global non-profit. after the break see why the organization is turning to problems here at home. you really cant' dvr the future of the country. to help yo

change looks like, well, this is exactly what it looks like. in fact, look at a compilation of the local news to get a sense of how much we are already in the middle of climate change and the devastating consequences. >> they say they have never seen anything like it. many, many homes and businesses, we're told that at its peak, 80% of the burrow of little fairy was flooded or underwater at that point. they evacuated more than a thousand people, using boat brigade. neighboring towns tame in to help. >> it's going down another 200 yards south and if you now look north i know, it might be a tougher angle to see past the street sign, past the s.u.v., we're talking all the way into bellmar. >> these rescues started papping and trucking coming in. we're seeing more people stepping out of this national guard truck. >> you see water right up to the doors here in long beach island and just total devastation. >> a jaw dropping video shot from her hunting lon long idol back yard. the rain saturated sail with jarring winds were able to shake this tree down to its core. it looks like a monster comin
, across the northeast millions of americans are relying on the local, state and federal governments for more than a little help. the need for public assistance in a crisis like this storm is simply massive. back in june 2011 when governor romney was trying to win over republican primary voters at a debate, you may have seen this. he had this to say about how to fix the financially-strapped federal emergency management agency better known as fema. take a listen. >> romney: every time you have an occasion to take something from the federal government and send it back to the states, that's the right direction. and if you go even further and send it back to the private sector, that's even better. >> jennifer: send it back to the private sector is even better. fast forward to today. seven days until the election. the nation is seeing the aftermath of hurricane sandy. romney didn't have an answer for reporters when they asked him five times about fema. for perspective on what fema might look like under a romney
the state and local governments have spent 25%. that's a disaster aid formula that has been around for a long time. there is another ratio where the federal government spends 90% and the state only spends 10%. how in the world are they going to rebuild that after the federal government. it all works together. it doesn't mean that you only need federal government and you don't neat local contractors or governors or mayors, of course not. that's a ridiculous and extreme comments that only republicans would make. speaking of ex-treatment comments, do you remember mitt romney said he didn't believe there should an federal fema? unbelievable. he was asked about that from reporters. let's get the response. >> what is your response about fema? >> cenk: he was asked 14 times that day and i never answered the question. that's pretty telling right there in and of itself. now, when we come back we've got one of the top climate scientists in the world with us, james hansen. they warned us, they warned that storms like this would happen. they didn't listen. by the way, the republicans are also
the period of stewardship, the state's share of education spending went down and local spending on schools went up. for instance, my school was cut by 20% during that period, which meant that i had to make some pretty dramatic cuts, proposed dramatic cuts in my school system. we laid off teachers, paraprofessionals, public works employees and others that are critical. he presided over those cuts, because certainly the state budget was out of balance. it was a tough time and as a former chief elected official, i understand how difficult that can be. i don't think he's totally frank about the fact that his -- during his time as governor, it was very difficult for local school systems. >> and it's a question of priorities when you make tough cuts. if you pick education primarily kindergarten through 12 education, right? he also cut higher ed. >> is that right? massachusetts is one of the states that massachusetts is on the lower end nationally. >> bill: he bragged about as governor that he knows how to create jobs, not just at bain capital, but massachusetts. >> caller: our unemployment rate

the vice president of a local bank and she ended up living alone by choice and the reason she could be independent was because of social security and medicare. she had worked all of her life put in this money, and understood that there was a basic guarantee, a floor under which she could not go. and that's the perspective i bring when i think about what is called entitlements the name itself implies something else. these are folks who work hard and are counting on this. my approach is how do we strengthen the system over the long term. in medicare we said we are going to have to bring down the costs if we're going to deal with our long-term deficits but to do that, let's look at where some of the money is going. $716 billion we were able to save by no longer overpaying insurance companies, by making sure that we weren't overpaying providers, and using that money we were actually able to lower prescription drug costs for seniors by an average of $600 and make a significant dent in providing them the kind of preventative care that will save money throughout th
the easy one to point the finger at. how about the local media, was there anyone in the media--i'm not looking for blame but did anyone stand up and say let's step back and examine this? >> not for a long, long time. in the beginning it was like a media feeding frenzy. every day when the paper came out, the news came on, you heard stories about satanic rituals and satanic orgies and all these sorts of things where they were trying to stir the community into an absolute frenzy, trying to make it as sensational as they possibly could. it was only years down the road when new witnesses came forth or dna evidence came out then they started to accurately report what was happening. but until then they just made it as sensational as possible. by the time we did walk into the courtroom by that point the trial was a formality that they had to go through to sentence us. >> eliot: i looked, and i have not dealt into this as many have, but there was one coerced confession did your lawyers give you real representation? were they skilled in death penalty reputation? did they have the skills

of a local movie theater. the two candidates also stood just six miles from the location of the horrific 1999 shooting of columbine high school. you wouldn't knee either of these things because the gun control, gun violence and gun regulation were all topics not one mentioned during the debate. but survivors of the aurora shooting are urging both presidential candidates to end their silence on the issue of gun violence. stephen barton was one of those 58 wounded when a gunman opened openedded fire in aurora this past july. >> i was shot, shot in the face and neck. but i was lucky. in 48,000 americans won't be so lucky because they'll be murdered before the next president's term. when you had watch the presidential debates ask yourself who has a plan to stop gun violence. >> eliot: stephen barton who graduated from syracuse university this past may and won a prestigious fulbright scholarship to teach english in russia was on a summer bike trip across the country when a gunman in aurora tragically derailed his plans. what has the response been other than regular folks like me who watch it and s
plan to transfer power to local security forces by the end of 2014. syria, romney wants to give aid to neighboring states. number 3 is iran where both romney and the president say the country should not have access to nuclear weapons. plus yesterday romney promised to restore aircraft carrier groups to the region but we already have one in the gulf. and romney attacked the president for not signing a single agreement in the last four years, but he is wrong. mr. obama has signed agreements with south korea, and panama. we'll be right back. growing up i had a single mother of four and people in the community were so helpful when they didn't even have much themselves. seeing people and their hardships made me want to make a difference in people's lives to give them hope. receiving a masters degree would open the doors for me to get into a management position where i would be able to do more for people. ♪ >> announcer: broadcasting across the nation, on your radio, and on current tv this is the "bill press show." >> bill: here we go 28 days and counting. time is running o

, charitable contributions state and local taxes healthcare paid premiums by employers are according to romney, off the table for middle class taxpayers. there is clearly a huge gaping hole. this plan really is no more than swiss cheese in its current form. electing a candidate with a plan is one thing. electing a candidate who is selling a mirage is something else altogether. if romney wants the serious second look he's getting to continue, he owes the public a serious answer to this question... the media has tried occasionally with no success. ryan's answer that he didn't have enough time to explain the plan. surely that didn't inspire confidence. we need credible reasons why this plan will work and the burden of proof when running for the presidency of the united states of america should be higher than trust me, i'll tell you later. that's my view. build a ground-breaking car. good. now build a time machine. go here, find someone who can build a futuristic dash board display. bring future guy back. watch
other thing that is important in this, the other local question. if you have mitt romney's position and say he appoints justices who reverse roe versus wade and so you have got half of the states controlled by republican governors and republican house and senate members so abortion is made illegal in those states, even with exceptions for rape and incest, what does this mean? if you're a woman who gets raped, now you want to apply for the exception, do you have to go before a rape panel to prove that you were raped? do you have to prove you were a victim of incest? how long does that take? and by that point isn't it too late? the logical extension of these positions leads you to an i will illogical conclusion, one so extreme that this nation would not want to find itself in that place. >> eliot: it is extreme. it is crazy. the map that we see so often these days, the red and the blue map on electoral votes if roe v. wade is overturned it would soon be impossible for a woman to get an abortion. that is going to fundamentally change civil rights. mitt romney wants to pretend no such t
